La Regle du Jeu, February 2015

The Rules of the Game, showing Thursday 26 February 2015 at the Cranleigh Film ClubChile 1939. Director Jean Renoir.

Certificate PG

This work by one of France’s greatest directors, the son of the Impressionist master, has consistently ranked in the top ten best films ever according to world critics and directors.

It is a country house social comedy of manners, but Renoir’s masterly way of revealing human cowardice, mendacity, and blindness helps this film to be seen as heralding the rottenness in French upper class society on the eve of the capitulation to the Germans.

A classic, chosen by CFC members.

110 minutes.
